We believe that an independent Water Ombudsman is necessary to safeguard the interests of waterway users and to be able to look at conflicts of interest in Scottish Canals' ativities. He should be able to ensure that navigation along the full length of the lowland canals is maintained for the benefit of future generations.

This is long overdue.

In their current form Scottish Canals are unaccountable to their users. I also believe the Board of Scottish Canals should have a representative from each of the Canal user groups
